As one of the 8 Best Upcoming Games You've Never Heard Of, the game Candleman was highly valued by Game Spot, a famous professional website in games information worldwide

【Brief Introductions】

In a world of endless darkness, as a candle living only 10 seconds, what would you choose? To burn out yourself and wait for death, or to light up the darkness and hunt for hopes?

As one of the 8 Best Upcoming Games You've Never Heard Of, the game Candleman will bring you an immersive adventure experience with distinct subjects, profound stage-designing and 4K-level frames and pictures in the mood of Zen. In its magic scenes as in a dream or in a movie, a candle with faint flames looks for his way forward constantly for the hopes in his heart, groping endless darkness with his memory of only 10 seconds.

Let’s go forward together for our dream before the candle burns out!

【Game Features】

——One frame as one wallpaper

In a magnificent and mysterious adventure world, with the ingenious combination of faint flames and dreamy lights and shadows, an ordinary candle, for his dream, experiences the changing of game scenes and the shifting of lights and shadows.

——One scene in one trap

In the darkness of every frame, everything in your eyes seems to be in a dream, as well as in a movie. You will challenge magic puzzles composed of lights and shadows in the darkness and experience interactions between colors and backgrounds.

——Every music note deep in nature

During the gameplay, you will feel the profoundness and mysteriousness of the game world with an immersive experience from atmosphere-perfecting background music, and meticulous and providential sound effects.

——One experience after one journey

Even with faint flames, the candleman hopes to light up the underground world in the darkness, and makes great achievements. Doing the extraordinary in ordinary life is exactly what the game answers to the players.

【Media Comments】

Burning out his limited energy and lighting up the hope of independent games in China. (Xbox China)

Absolutely Candleman is the domestic game with the biggest surprise, without “one of”. (

Suddenly moved without explanation, it reminded me of myself and of everyone around me. (

The creativities, frames and sense of playing of this game are all worth praising. (

Brilliant game

Love everything about it! And thanks to the devs for fixing the blue ceiling bug in the water level!

One of the best platformers I have played

This is an amazing game and deserves all the praise. I am looking forward to the rest of the chapters whenever it comes. Great job!

Good game

I have to say it’s a good game but the lack of levels really gets boring this game has had the same amount of levels for a while and I wish the developers would add more


Can’t wait for more chapters! What’s the time frame looking like?


In the final level of chapter: 3 there is a glitch where when you are riding on boxes the angle viewing perspective goes to high and then just goes blank. Although it is a very good game and I might be the only one experiencing it. Thank you developers if you are reading this and please help.

Good game

This game is one of the best I’ve seen in a while on mobile but I wish it had more levels even though some are in development they do take a while and the game can be 100% in less than 3 hours


The game stopped saving after the third map. I want my money back. And good luck trying to get app support 😂😂 that’s all in Chinese

In love with the little light

I love this puzzle. Waiting for more. The sound and graphics are transporting. Thank you for your art.


I’m a paying customer like EVERYONE else, and my review is valid/factual review, apple! Unless the dev is slipping you money of course. The game has bugs/glitches that cause the screen to be blocked out on my iPad Pro 10.5 and iPad Pro 9.7 on the water crate level: FACT. If the dev would like to contact me to discuss then by all means, but if you delete again you prove my suspicion that the dev is paying Apple to delete negative reviews. For a premium paid game, I expect the game to work properly (especially a game that is incomplete with levels to come ‘later’). But the current glitch makes the water crate level UNBEATABLE as you cannot see anything and you end up dying. This NEEDS to be fixed.

Needs tvOS support

The graphics and gameplay are wonderful on my iPhone X! This game would be even better on my TV with my MFi controller! 🙏🏻 Please add support for this app to run on Apple TV and please add MFi controller support!
